Back in Michigan you cant beat the A&W drive-up if your in a hurry. But, for the best burger in town Halftime bar is the best 1/4# cooked weight, and only 89 cents each if you get it plain. Dressed its about $1.14

1/4 elbow burger for under a buck? Glad that is not close to me.

I truly have to remind myself sometimes that I was once at their level.

I don’t mind people doing it wrong, weird form etc - I mind people leaving weights on things and not putting back equipment, or hogging stuff. Lazy & entitled.
True. its been almost 40 years. I still get pissed when they sit on the bench for 30 min on there phone and have completed like 3 set.
Funny story: about a month ago there was a guy in one of the squat rack's benching and on his phone. the manager taped a piece of paper at the top that said " Texting Rack" I laughed so hard I started crying!
It's still on there. There was a guy Squatting in the rack last night and I pointed at the sign and told him he better get his phone out if he was going to use it. We got a good laugh.

Awsome! thanks for sharing! I'm a Baptist and love all the old hymns! We hardly ever sing the old hymns anymore it's almost all contemporary.
This is my biggest complaint about Church Today !!

Yeah, I grew up in the 80's but dont ever remember hearing that before
You must have been running with the right group... Most people who know the term elbow have done some dealing or been around people who do. It is probably pretty obvious but the Elbow was code based on the abbreviation for pound which is LB.

Yeah, I like it to specially german spicy mustard.
Brand? I don't know that i have had German Spicy Mustard. Is it horse raddish based heat? I am not too into that specific type of heat unless the flavor is mild, the aftertaste of horse raddish gets too me.

They do have a horseradish type mustard but this was my favorite while living there in Bavaria

Honestly? I mean, painfully honest?

Your food choices could be better. Bread? Toxic! No idea what that "crusted stuff" around the meat is called in English -but HELL NO! You know what I mean, that KFC crust enveloping the real meat. Saw it earlier in a shrimp pic too. That is a NO-NO! Mark my words.

Just so you and everyone else can see HGP. Down south in South Louisiana. Cajuns use cornmeal to make their batter, not just straight up flour like KFC as you pointed to. Here is the nutritional value for the Cornmeal batter. Again, not disagreeing, just pointing out the difference.

Are you tracking calories and macros? It doesn’t seem like a lot of protein is going in to your meals.

Hey DC, I just wanted to say I think these guys are just trying to help.

Bro after everything youve been through you can eat whatever you want... Whatever makes you happy brother.

But, you're diet needs some serious help. Youre training seems to be dialed in pretty good. But just eating something small for lunch and then dinner isnt the best option. I know youre intermittent fasting but its your food choices these guys are looking at. I noticed it too and didnt really want to say anything BUT were not doing you any favors by looking the other way. Fried foods are horrible for the body and they seem to be a staple in your diet. And often times for lunch you just have a sandwich which after intermittent fasting is just going to further stall your metabolism. Your body's gonna be like "thats all? I waited 16 hrs for this ****ty sandwich you mfer". Once you break your fast feed that beast with some whole clean food (I'm talking larger portions your insulin sensitivity will be high and your body will be ready to digest a higher carb/calorie meal. Take advantage of the IF.) and ramp your metabolism up.

I'm sure someone like The Solution or even HGP, myself or even @tyga wpuld be willing to help you if you want.

Anyhow man just kind of learning how diet works with the body and looking at how you're eating you may want to try a different approach and I think you will see a greater physique change. At the end of the day brother we're just trying to help you but it's your life man and honestly if eating those foods make you happy then go for it. But if your goal is to change your body and how it looks then you're going to need some adjusting.

Yes, and its pan fried in sunflower oil, and the bread that we use down here is known as french bread, I'll post the nutritional information for that as well. Again, not discrediting anyone or not trying to take advise. I'm at my parents house, last day on vacation and headed to the airport shortly. When I'm hear I eat like a traditional Cajun, cause I don't get to eat some of this food in Michigan. Again, look up french bread and the studies that they have done. Not saying its great for you but, again it aint as bad as enriched white bread.

I think DC, is eating like this due to vacation and knowing that he want get this kind of good southern food up north when he return home. It’s nothing wrong with homemade fried foods. It becomes a problem when you eating it daily but 1-2 times a week is cool.

Not while I'm on Vacation. And if you look it up Shrimp have about 24g of protein per serving, and Oysters are about 8g of protein per serving. Just using those as a reference from what I posted.

No, I get where y'all are coming from. I do, and I'm not offended. But seriously go look up what I said. Again, I don't eat like this all the time, and I'm on the end of my vacation.

I wasn’t razz’n you, you just lost someone and you’re on vacation, so enjoy the food.

I was just pointing out the nutritional value was for dry, weighted corn meal, not cooked/fried.

Dude, we take vacations every year out of state (trying to get over my fear of flying so we can go out of country) and I don’t track a single calorie when we do. But, I still stay aware of my macro bank, if I have a fatty meal then I know my next needs to be reduced. If you’re not enjoying your vacation, then what’re you on vacation for?!?

All this food you’ve posted has looked awesome - jealous of that cookin’! A week of vacation will be alright, especially with you doing IF and managing portions.

Those leg curls in that leg session were nuts; mine are burning just reading it! 20s with no rest at 100+ is for real

List of known enemies to our cause, found in food:
-refined oils, all of them, including sunflower
-deep fried stuff
-bread, especially white bread
-most stuff with flower in it
-refined sugar
-sausages (full of everything you do not want in your body)
-ham (most cooked ham isn't even meat! Look it up)
-all commercial dressings
-all commercial stuff that comes out of bags, like mashed potatoes
-mayonnaise (use sparingly)
-ketchup (use sparingly)
-mustard (use sparingly)
-any crust, no matter what (KFC crust alike), full of refined oils and carcinogens
-sweet stuff, skittles and alike

List is longer, maybe its easier to list what's allowed:
-meat, any meat -unless deep fried
-fish and seafood (beware of shrimps and most farmed fish, full of chemicals)
-veggies, all
-fruits (well, you need fibers and vitamins, I eat 1-2 fruits a day)
-potatoes/all kinds (not fried in refined oil, dammit -and not freeze dried from a bag full with chemicals)
-rice
-pasta
-beans (very good choice)
-lentils (good)
-bacon (some)
-nuts, any nuts -but beware of calories
-seeds (like nuts)
-spices
-oats (NOT the commercial colored loopy-poopies!)

I sure missed a bunch, anyone?

DemntedCowboy , just saying what has to be said, no azzholish intentions from my part, brother.
I put a "like thumb" to most of your food pics, because I thought it were cheat meals! Seriously.
Then I saw more coming... :)

Friends tell what must be said, you are making progress already, lets optimize it!

I understand. They where "cheat meals" technically. I was on Vacation, and if you look in the new years thread. I got smaller around the waist in my pics since being here.

Healthy fats like avocado and olives/olive oil are nifty. Natural honey is healthy with proper application. Regarding nuts, peanuts are actually pro-inflammatory (not that I give a fart).

You lost me at mustard man. Mustard, ketchup, even mayo can all be made very healthy without sugar or refined oil (and would always be used in moderation, nobody is eating half a cup of mayo). Dressings the same - nothing unhealthy about olive oil with some vinegar, spices and lemon. Now a bottle of most soybean oil loaded with sugar trash you see often at the store, yeah that’s not helping anything.

Also, sausages depend on contents - big difference between some nitrate-free ground spiced meat and a patty that will last months unfrozen from McDonald’s.

I will NEVER eat any soy products. They spike estrogen levels.

Yes, yes. I'm talking commercial stuff, not homemade super-dooper dressings -or self made sausages. And, I eat all of the forbidden stuff -but on rare occasions.

Here a good read:

Not a problem. They contain plant estrogens. That doesn't equal gyno or a testosterone drop.
Yep, but soy has nasty other effects. As I remember, in kids it leads to:
boys: testicles not dropping
girls: reaching puberty way before due at age 8 or younger

This info may be outdated -and/or plain wrong. Its what I recall from studies I read 10 years ago. Take it with a grain of salt (better, make this a table spoon of salt)

And there was an article about a retired CSM in the Army growing boobs from eating it for years.
